Japan is my passion and I update this blog every week with all the wonderful things about Japan.

What fun things you can expect to find on the blog?

This is not a professional blog on Japan! I am not an expert on the country but I am very passionate about its history and culture. I research everything for this blog in my own time, so there occasionally may be a couple of minor mistakes. Hopefully the content and language of the blog will distract you from that!

Thank you for taking the time to look at this blog. Don’t forget to subscribe, follow me on Twitter or like the blog on Facebook and help spread the word!

  2. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Agoura Hills, California

    “MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN — THE FANTASTIC CINEMA OF ISHIRO HONDA” by Peter H. Brothers.

    For the first time outside Japan a book has been published on Japan’s foremost director of Fantasy Films: “MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN – The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda” (AuthorHouse, ISBN: 978-1-4490-2771-1).

    Known primarily for directing such classic Japanese monster movies as Rodan, Mothra, Attack of the Mushroom People and the original Godzilla, Ishiro Honda (1911 – 2011) has been an undeservedly overlooked figure in mainstream international cinema.

    MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN is the first book to cover in English print Honda’s life as well comprehensively evaluates all 25 of his fantasy films. It is also gives objective and critical analysis of Honda’s filmmaking methods, themes and relationships with actors and technicians.

    Making use of extensive interviews from Honda’s colleagues as well as a wealth of original source material never before gathered into one volume (including previously-unpublished essays) and nominated in 2009 for a “Rondo Award,” MUSHROOM CLOUDS AND MUSHROOM MEN is an affectionate tribute to the most-prolific and influential director in the history of fantasy films.

    (Three-time “Rondo” Award Nominee Peter H. Brothers is also the author of the new horror-novel Devil Bat Diary).
